Brooksfield Montessori school, which is located in McLean, Virginia, goes above and beyond when it comes to curriculum. For the elementary school children, they offer not only the usual Montessori classroom work, but also a program called Outdoor Adventures. ODA, as it is affectionately referred to by staff and children, gives children the opportunity to excel outside the walls of the classroom, while learning about and experiencing outdoor sports (such as rock climbing, canoeing, hiking, camping etc.) science and nature. This program also builds teamwork, cooperation, trust, problem solving skills and a sense of wonder and respect for the great outdoors.
